Rajnigandha Fame Veteran Actress Vidya Sinha Passes Away At 71

Vidya Sinha

The quintessential Indian woman she represented became her USP, and she found ready roles in the genre of middle-of-the-road cinema - the seventies equivalent to the new-age multiplex movie, made on medium budget and flaunting no superstars, but banking entirely on content. Basu Chatterjee, a connoisseur of the genre, frequently cast her in his films.

In between, Sinha had been missing from the serial on account of her illness but bounced back a few weeks ago till her demise.

Veteran Bollywood actor Vidya Sinha, famed for her role in the Basu Chatterjee film "Rajnigandha" (1974), passed away after a brief lung-cum-heart ailment here on Thursday, family sources said.

Deepa in Rajnigandha (1974): The film was directed by Basu Chatterjee, whom she considered her mentor.

She later married her neighbour Venkateshwaran Iyer in 1968.

After Iyer's death in 1996, she quit acting for some time, and later entered into wedlock with Netaji B. Salunkhe, a doctor, in a temple ceremony.

Born to parents who were both part of the film industry, Sinha started her career as a model at the age of 18, and slowly progressed to films. While she was a popular face in Ekta Kapoor's Kaavyanjali, she has worked on TV shows such as Kavyanjali, Bhabhi, Kulfi Kumar Bajewala, Qubool Hai, Chandra Nandini and Bahu Rani.

The actress starred in several films before calling it quits and settling overseas, although she had returned for a second innings in Bollywood with Bodyguard, much like the 70s, Bollywood had little to offer to her and did not give her films where she could have showcased her enormous talent. Sinha Ji also made her mark in television. "She will have to stay here for a few days for complete recovery".

She is survived by a daughter, Jhanvi. Anyway, the kind of movies and roles she liked to do had begun to disappear.

Several songs filmed on Vidya Sinha became fan favourites. Nightingale Lata Mangeshkar took to Twitter to express her grief and wrote, "Aaj guni abhinetri Vidya Sinha ka swargwas hua ye sunke mujhe bahut dukh hua". The couple parted ways in 2009. However, she was then kept in ventilator support as her health deteriorated. I was aware that she had been admitted in the ICU.

"She was extremely warm and created a family bond with all unit and actors".
